And while I had heard of sugar cubes and blotter, the stuff we got - and there seemingly was plenty - had a distinct manufactured look to it. Tiny, neat, tapered orange pills. Not hippie-ish. $3.00 a trip. That's the stuff we took at Woodstock.
Once the chemical compound was known it wasn't that hard to manufacture -anyone with a university level education in chemistry could probably do it.
I'm not arguing to be Jimbo-ish but do uni grads have access to a pill making machine? I don't know. Maybe they're cheap. But the peyote I took was an actual peyote button off a cactus or powdered and dumped into gel capsule which were formerly vitamin capsules with the vitamin dumped out. It was only in the 80s when I had blotter acid, just scraps of paper with a stain of the liquid. Nothing ever beat the punch of the 60s stuff.
Funny, in my drawer I have a vacuum sealed and dried psilosibin mushroom I bought in the early 2000s during the brief window when mushrooms were legal in Japan. I often contemplate grinding it up into a smoothie just to kill a day here. I wonder a)does it still pack a punch and b) will it make me sick?
